I choose these because my local Skechers didn't have the lace style. They are comfortable with the memory foam inside and fit my regular size for a tennis shoe. I have worn these to use on the treadmill at the gym as well as working long shifts at my retail job. I would definitely recommend these shoes.

Though I find these very comfortable, I've only been worn them for two weeks and the soles are already getting slick and worn. I would only recommend these if you are only going to wear them occasionally or only indoors. Does not appear to be durable enough for everyday walking on concrete.

These are the only shoes I can wear. I have arthritis, and these are very comfortable. I get the high tops because they help my heel spur. I can walk for miles in them.

    Comments about Burst - Divergent:

    I work at a warehouse. Im on my feet all day and was always in pain. I've tried several other high end name sneakers, but nothing seemed to help. I've never bought a pair of skechers before. I figured what do i have to lose. Well i ordered them online. I had them in about a week, i now own 3 differnt styles of skechers. They are so comfortable, not only that but my feet no longer hurt me. Tun true to size and are stylish. I won't wear anything else anymore but my skechers. Thank you skechers, you're gained a customer for life.

          I wear these shoes with my yoga work out pants when I don't want to wear boots. They look great and are so lightweight. They also look great with skinny jeans instead of boots. I have another pair of Skechers which are slip ons and I use those as slippers.

              A:

              There is a black/black color in the similar looking Burst - Up and Under model for men, it is currently out of stock but appears to be coming back into stock around early mid December. The Burst - Donlen is another Burst model with a high-rise front, that is currently in stock in a black color.

              The Air Cooled Memory Foam insole in the Burst shoes should be able to be pulled out with a little extra force if needed.

              While I have not yet purchased these shoes, I have played tennis for 20 years. You should have a smooth sole on your tennis shoe. If you have traction on the bottom of your sole it is more likely that you can injure yourself. Please consider this. I would not personally buy this shoe for tennis, but for walking.

              A:

              The Burst shoes are meant as a comfort sneaker that could also be used for some gym activities. They have a smooth outsole with soft traction nubs. I haven't heard from any customers specifically regarding tennis playing in these, but they should be comfortable and supportive for a casual game at least.

              These should fit similar to the Shape-ups shoes, I would advise trying these in the 10 if you fit those in a 10.

              The Burst - Divergent have an Air Cooled Memory Foam insole. The shoes have no leather in them, they are made from a flat knit mesh fabric. There are some leather versions coming soon though.

              If you have already placed your order, you may want to try to cancel it and redo it with the promo code entered before you complete checkout. SPRSAVE10 should work on this style.

            Q:

            I like the navy ones. I'm looking for very fresh shoes, but I'm wondering if the mesh is open or if it has another fabric covering the holes from inside? I'd like to get as many ventilation as posible, since I live in a very hot place.
            I'd also like to know if these ones are the same ones sold in Amazon by Scheckers, since the ones in there seem to have padded tongue and more pad from inside. Could you please clarify this too? Thanks.

              The mesh on the Divergent shoe is nice and breezy, it's stable and durable yet has very good air flow. These should be the same model as the ones that Amazon sells, especially if they are the same name. I'm not sure what their photos look like, but the Divergent shoes on skechers.com should be the correct look.
